Using the five fingers of each hand as a check off device, the film identifies a food group with each finger. Using this system, Ralph learns to eat a balanced diet and has more fun because of his better health.
Ken Smith sez: This film teaches youngsters that "eating with others is fun," though only if they follow a sensible diet. "Ralph" has such bad dietary habits that he has no pep, but once he learns that he should eat an egg a day and that "meat is good for you," everything is fine. Unfortunately, there's not enough faulty information in this film to make it worthwhile. The pandering narrator can also be heard in Appreciating Our Parents.
